Hello everyone! Today the day was warm here at the base but when we went out it was a bit chilly, unlike the other days.

The first sighting was a little group of Bottlenose Dolphins. This time we saw one “special” Bottlenose Dolphins. It was the Egyptian, because the dorsal fin was cut and had a triangular shape. It can have more dolphins like this, so we cannot say for sure that it was “the one”, but now you have an idea and you can always go to Monicet and check the Photo ID section.

After this dolphins, we went to see Fin Whales and Blue Whales! One of the Fin Whales was really big and it was hard to see the dorsal fin, because it was so huge. We can say now that the Baleen Whale season with Blue Whales has really started.
